COSC 49.10 Randomized Algorithms

Randomness is one of the key resources in algorithm design. Many problems have faster algorithms if randomization is allowed, and indeed, for certain problems randomness is essential. The course will introduce the probability basics, the fundamental tools, and provide multiple applications in machine learning, big data, optimization, etc.

Prerequisite

A first course on algorithms and mathematical maturity to read and write proofs will be assumed. Prerequisite Courses: COSC 31, COSC 30.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:TAS

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
